My pubic bone feels as though it's just getting ready to shatter into about a million pieces anytime I'm doing anything but laying down. Sitting isn't too bad usually & adjusting can help it stop, but standing or walking? Don't get me started.

That is all, I just needed to tell someone I was miserable besides DH who gets it, but at the end of the day has no idea how this hurts. lol

Last time around, I didn't have anything like this. Once I was about 40 weeks I felt some heavy feeling in the area, for lack of a better word, but here I am 36 weeks today & the past couple days I've been miserable. Even when I was "overdue" I wasn't uncomfortable for the most part. I wish I could say that now!

I'm experiencing this as well. Some days I can barely walk or stand. Lying down helps, but I can't roll over and getting out of bed at night is excruciating! It really does feel like my pelvis/pubic bones have broken and aren't being held together at all.

I have so much trouble putting knickers and pants on, or trying to sit down on the toilet seat, or climb a single step.

I found this article today though, and it explains what I'm experiencing perfectly: http://www.babycenter.com.au/pregnan...th/pelvicpain/

I have this too (SPD) and it's just awful. Some days, I can barely move. I have to hold on to the walls and doors to get around my house. It's one of the big reasons I want this pregnancy over. I know I'll have some pain postpartum, but the sooner I can start to recover, the better! Only 3 more days until this babe is full term!

I have this too and the things that aggravate it:

practicing squatting
stretches that stretch inner thighs
taylor sitting too long

I have to sleep with a rolled up towel (NOT a pillow) between my legs and try to have my pelvis straight as much as I can (ie not lounging at a side angle where hips are cocked) and the chiropractor has helped some.

I had AWFUL pain like this with my twins. This time I had excrutiating pain from about week 14 until I started going to the chiropractor. So I would say a chiropractor helps a ton. Also, when I do start feeling that burning aching pain I lay down and do leg lifts and stretches and pelvic tilts until it starts to not hurt as bad. Then it seems I feel a lot better.
I feel for you all. ITs really painful. If you can do leg excercises and see a chiro it may make a big difference.
